These Color Studies are paintings I did to test colors and composition. It's always good to practice and to see what colors look good together. It is in this format that I freely use whatever colors I want. The riskiest combinations sometimes turn out to be the most interesting to look at. Also the design is done with free hand and I just let my mental state at the time dictate where the line will go. Every smudge, transparency, pencil line, or spill is all part of the piece. I used soft body acrylics for these so that the paint will glide on to the paper smoothly.
I wish that one day the color of our skin could be like paint. That all of the different shades together would be considered art.
